Ruptured Achilles Tendon - Day 3

Good News: 1 day later - Aetna approved the MRI (like they should)
Bad News: the MRI company gave away our Wednesday morning time spot to someone else, so we were able to get an appointment Wednesday at 430p. However, that means Kevin would have to drive himself to the appointment.
He's able to drive, since it was his left Achilles that ruptured, but it is pretty cumbersome for him to get around.

He was standing longer than he should and the blood started to pool at the foot. When he took off his splint the foot was pretty swollen and bruised.

Later that night he slept with his foot elevated which helped reduce the swelling.

Bruising on both sides of the foot :(
